Summary
"The decline of the West is something that has long been prophesied. Symptoms of decline are all around us: slowing growth, crushing debts, aging populations, anti-social behaviour. But what is the cause? The answer, Niall Ferguson argues, is that out institutions -- the intricate frameworks within which a society can flourish or fail -- are degenerating."--Back cover
Summary
An examination of institutional dysfunction in the Western world argues that such values as a free market and representative government are being compromised while future generations are inheriting unmanageable levels of debt
